Winners vs Losers - 03/29/10 10:37 AM
Losers quit when they are tired. Winners quit when they have won. This can be a good phrase to live by in any game of life. Never give up until the game or race is over. (3 comments)

You lose with potential. You win with performance. Bill Percells (Pro football coach) This is something that we can all relate to - we always say that someone has so much potential . . . we need to learn how to channel that potential into a performing activity. Good luck and go for it! (0 comments)
13 things your dog can teach you - 03/26/10 09:07 AM
1) When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. 2) Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstacy. 3) Let others know when they've invaded your territory. 4) Take naps and stretch before rising. 5) Run- romp- and play daily. 6) On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under the shady tree. 7) When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. 8) No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout. . . run right back out and make friends. 9) Delight (3 comments)
Declutter your life! - 03/25/10 11:01 AM
To have an uncluttered mind at the end of each day, make a list of everything, even the little things, that you must accomplish the next day. Then, make sure you end the day with a clean slate. . .Benjamin Franklin. I have tried this and right before I go to bed I make my list - then I don't toss and turn all night wondering if I will remember in the morning. Try it! (3 comments)
Standing in the bull ring! - 03/24/10 09:56 AM
As the old spanish proverb says: It's not the same to talk of bulls as to be in the bullring. This is so true. Do you ever feel that you are in the hotseat in negociations - during showings -a t closings. WE must first always remember to think before you speak. Just babbling can get you in more trouble than if you say nothing. Speak slowly and don't say anything until you have your facts. Just a few tips to get you out of the bullring and back to safety.

Are you really working at your career? - 03/23/10 11:49 AM
I work many agents in small town and the majority of business is done by a handful of agents. Many of the other agents sit and talk about these agents and how they have so much business - but when it comes to advertising - they are not willing to spend any money to promote themselves. Do you care about your career and your livelyhood? this makes we think of this saying: It isn't the number of people employed in a business that makes it sucessful, it's the number working! We can all go through the motions -but need to actually (3 comments)
What is your IQ? - 03/22/10 12:54 PM
Your IQ is not nearly as important as your "I will". - Author unknown. We can all learn from using this in our day to day routine. More "I'will" can improve all of our attitudes and help others too. Sometimes we are so in the me- me - me mode that we forget to do the "I will's". Let's all strive to not worry about our IQ. (4 comments)
Don't short change your career looks! - 03/19/10 12:57 PM
I am one that goes my the belief that first impressions are lasting ones. In the first 8 seconds that you meet a client they are "sizing you up" to determine if they want to work with you. This not only happens the first time but each meeting I believe. I am not saying that you have to dress up all the time - but if meeting a client - make them feel that they are important to you - don't show up in sweats- old holey jeans or sweatshirts. Treat this like a career and dress the part. Your livelyhood depends (4 comments)
